Position: Assistant Coach
Alma Mater: Purdue ('06)
Experience: 4 Years

Tracy Duchac was named assistant coach for the Stanford women's swimming team in 2012 after serving the previous season as an assistant at Arizona. The 2013-14 season marks her second on The Farm.

In her first season with the program, Stanford set four school and three Avery Aquatic Center records to help highlight the 2012-13 season. The Cardinal won the Pac-12 Conference Championships for the third time in four seasons, holding off second-place USC by 21 points. On top of an eighth-place finish at the NCAA Championships, nine student-athletes combined for 30 All-American honors.

Duchac, who earned honorable mention All-America honors as a swimmer at Purdue, helped Arizona to a fifth-place finish at the 2012 NCAA Championships, the program's ninth consecutive NCAA finish in the top five.

Prior to her one-year stint at Arizona, Duchac served as the women's assistant coach at Texas A&M for five seasons.

During her tenure at Texas A&M, the women's team posted a program-best five top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championships, including a fourth-place showing in 2008.

In 2009, Duchac mentored Texas A&M's first two NCAA individual national champions in Julia Wilkinson and Alia Atkinson.

Duchac also served as a volunteer assistant coach at Purdue and was instrumental in the Boilermakers setting nine team records, while posting a top-25 finish at the 2006 NCAA Championships. Duchac also helped coach a club team with Boilermaker Aquatics.

A 2006 graduate of Purdue, Duchac earned a bachelor's degree in health promotion. Duchac is a former College Swim Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) All-Academic honoree and a three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection.

Duchac became the first Boilermaker in program history to break the 23-second barrier in the 50 freestyle. She made a trio of appearances at the NCAA Championships (2003, 2004, 2005) and earned honorable mention All-American honors in the 200 and 400 freestyle relays. Duchac had a hand in recording school records in each of those events.

A native of Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., Duchac is married to Adam Slusser.
